    Hi Guru


    I had tried tapping on the logo and nothing happens before I wrote to Fixya! It won't download. Is there another solution?

    Hi Guru,



    I have tried repeatedly to install the flash player and it won't install. This is why I was writing to Fixya. Is there another way to download the player onto the Archos? I have tried downloading the latest flash player from the website and it won't open on the player I get a message that it is an unrecognizable file. Any help you can offer is appreciated.

    I have tried to download the player to the Archos 5 many times and I get a message that the palyer doesn/t recognize the file. I have tried downloading to my PC and then transferring the file to the download folder on the Archos and it still won't load. This why I wrote to Fixya in the frirst place. I am very disappointed that your so called guru's have sent me very basic solutions that anybody would know to do. If you guys don't know of a fix for this issue just refund my $12.99 and I will keep calling Archos CS until somebody answers the phone.

These flash app sometimes get corrupted or are not properly installed, I do not know now but if you have the possibility try to install the Flash again, the best would be to uninstall it and install it again.

Have a look on on this site here and see if you find anything that can help:

In order to access Flash Content you need flash player. In fact sometimes you are required to have the latest flash player. So suggest you go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=DXLUJ to download it. Once you install it the problem should be resolved.

How do you get you tube to play on archos 7


You can watch it with the help of Opera browser. Adobe haven't released flash 10 for mobile yet. But You CAN play videos on youtube. Go to the link, then click on something on the upper right corner of the video, which is "open in new window" . You will be able to watch the video.

As far as I know, the Archos 5/7 cannot play youtube HQ or youtube HD. Another way to say, it doesn't show "HD" or "HQ" for you to click on.

Also you can watch the youtube videos on http://www.youtube.com/xl

Adobe flash plug in has been crushed


If the flash player has crashed once, then it may not be a problem but if this is occurring repeatedly, then try to upgrade your flash player. If your flash player is up-to-date, then it may be the incompatibility between the flash player and the web-browser. In that case, try to have both the most recent updated browsers, like Mozilla Firefox 4, Google Chrome 12 or IE 8 or IE 9 and corresponding updated flash player.

To download latest softwares, click on the links below:
  1. Adobe Flash Player IE (for Internet Explorer, Avant,etc)
  2. Adobe Flash Player Non-IE (for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc)
  3. Mozilla Firefox 4 RC
  4. Google Chrome 12 Beta
If you use Firefox or Chrome as browser, then Flash Player for Non-IE is sufficient, but still I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE flash players.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Hi I recently got my HTC desire HD hand set. But I am facing problem with reading Hindi fonts on it.... It just shows boxes where ever the wesite content is written in hindi. Please help me to solve...


It may be an issue with the stock browser.
I have read that using the Opera Mini browser can render UTF8 character sets properly, specifically Hindi:

Archos uses Opera as the web browser - you may need to download the plug-in from the Archos site. Here is a link for a general review of several browsers including Opera http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/starthere/browserreview.html

Reinstalling flash player on archos 5


you will most likely have to wait on the release from adobe in october for that to happen.. in the mean time you can install the google market on the archos and then install opera mini web browser and it will allow you to watch youtube videos.. i found that to work best for me.. opera mini can only be found in the google market for android download though.. i tried several times to find it before but i never was able to get a download link for android...
hope this helps... Daniel

UNABLE TO CONNECT YAHOO IN INTERNET EXPLORER


were you able to connect to other web sites?

check to see if yahoo has been blocked on your browser- Tools-Internet Options-Content- Disable content advisor.

Also, try to use a different browser to see if it will be accessible (Mozilla Firefox, Netscape, Opera).

Instillation problem


Try using a different browser, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla SeaMonkey (super-fast), Opera, Google Chrome. I believe that IE now blocks Flash, by default because of the many vulnerabilities within Flash

ARCHOS 704 WIFI


The video plugin you bought is so that you may watch Videos by transferring them from your computer. But what you are trying to do cannot be done because your archos browser does not come with flash so you cannot view videos in a website. Unfortunately it just cannot be done. I also have a 704 and was very disapointed to learn that I cannot watch videos from websites.
